2:48am
maintenance about 52 billion more than what's available. texas they have built more highways anl bridges but next 20-years it will fall short of what it needs to keep that network in working condition. the congressional budget office estimates on the federal level the country needs 14 billion in additional funds each year to maintain highways and 50 billion more to improve them. we have gotten to the point where the government accountability office says only 5.2 percent of funds alotted to the federal highway administration are going to highway construction. 2.5 will be bridges. almost everything else is maintenance yet we still can't keep up. the recent federal transportation bill pushes states to developer form man's standards for federal highway standards and it's too soon to know whether it will have any impact. it expires at the end of the year. states have tough choices ahead. >> i thought that's what the gas tax was supposed to cover.
